I wish more schools, both college level and the lower schools would start teaching the manual arts again, especially in North Carolina.

The article you posted was about Reidsville, Rockingham County and we use to live in Rockingham, Richmond county.

There were not, at the time we left about 6 years ago, any shop classes of any sort in any of the schools.

They were much more interested in filling the display cases with sports trophies for anything from Foot ball to the Roadkill sailing Championship!
